Yes, there is some trouble for the US.  If I'm not mistaken the US was allied with their current leader and it wouldn't look good for us with whatever new group takes command.  In addition, Egypt holds quite a bit of media and clout in the Arab world, (I believe that is correct).  Even if the protesters are defeated, it will not end well for many and create a new diplomatic thorn in many sides.

I understand your point but it does create implications that will be far reaching.

Interesting.  Egypt is a much bigger fish than Tunisia---if I had to bet, I would guess these riots end up more like the ones in Iran.  The one thing that gives the revolution some hope is that Mubarak is getting old and doesn't seem to have overwhelming support from within his own government.  Still, it always seems like the biggest possibility is another strongman comes to power who promises reform at first and then slips into old despotic habits as his power grows.

momentum has kept up. I'm pretty cynical but it's hard to see how things could go back to normal in many respects now.

It is seeming like he will have no choice but to step down at some point.  He would create far too much resentment to allow any kind of major police action.

Yeah, I'm catching up slowly on a little break here at work.  As I thought, he will have to step down.  He has no ability to control.  What remains of police forces, etc. will quickly join the rebels in short order.  Few will continue to fight against a hopeless tide in my eyes.

Latest news is that Mubarak has dismissed his entire government and is going to replace them - I doubt that will stem the tide.  There seem to be two factions vying for control at the moment - the token leader of the resistance is a moderate reformer, but the vile terrorist group the Muslim Brotherhood wields a lot of power on the streets and seems to be pulling some strings.  The last thing we need is another Middle Eastern country taken over by Islamist radicals.  Once more, I see, Lester seems to care less about America's interests.  What a surprise.  If a general Mideastern war breaks out, I wonder which side he will cheer for?

Muslim Brotherhood

Last time I checked they were more trying to get a part of it and not doing so well as they were seen as reacting rather being in on the beginning.

indiana- my interest is that the egyptian people not live under oppresion. our governments is that they continue to. So the less said about the latter the better I think.

the side of self determination and liberty. mainly the side of us not giving them 2 billion a year and cover for them to oppress their people.

I can't believe what a jerk I am for cheering on the people of Egypt as they get rid of a dictator they've had for 30 years! I am so heartless.
